Wall Street knows what they're buying.
They're buying the future.
They're buying a future where they can bankrupt the economy and still emerge with more profits than ever.
They're buying eternal freedom from prosecution for fraud and malfeasance.
They're paying the rent on captive regulatory agencies.
They're buying tax breaks that will help break the back of pesky social programs like Social Security and Medicaid.
They're making the best investment possible: Buying the President and Congress.
But there's a problem and his name is Bernie Sanders.
He's working for a future where a Wall Street transaction tax pays for free college tuition, where people make a decent wage and 'too big to fail' banks are broken up, where the banks can no longer gamble with depositor's savings. He's fighting for expanded Social Security and universal healthcare.
He's fighting for a society where people help other people. Where sharing and caring are valued more than unfettered greed.
That's what we the people are buying. That's why we're spending money and time supporting Sanders. We're not buying Bernie, we're buying into a vision of a better America.
This afternoon I'm going to be standing with a group of Sanders supporters waving signs in a small town at rush hour. It's not much, just an hour or so of my time, but we're doing it every week. It's a small contribution.
Yet across the nation those small contributions add up.
I hope that you too are contributing what you can.
Let's take back the future.
